Install MKE offline

To install MKE on an offline host, you must first use a separate computer with an Internet connection to download a single package with all the images and then copy that package to the host where you will install MKE. Once the package is on the host and loaded, you can install MKE offline as described in Install the MKE image.


During the offline installation, both manager and worker nodes must be offline.

To install MKE offline:

  1. Download the required MKE package:


    MKE 3.4.1 and 3.4.3 are discontinued and thus not available for download.


    Users running kernel version 4.15 or earlier may encounter an issue with MKE 3.4.2 wherein support dumps fail and nodes disconnect. Mirantis strongly recommends that these users either upgrade to kernel version 4.16 (or later) or upgrade to MKE 3.4.4.

  2. Copy the MKE package to the host machine:

    scp ucp.tar.gz <user>@<host>
  3. Use SSH to log in to the host where you transferred the package.

  4. Load the MKE images from the .tar.gz file:

    docker load -i ucp.tar.gz
  5. Install the MKE image.
